Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established SOS A Charitable Fund that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.

The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.

The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75 for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75 to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

Of the Abita beers Ive tried, this is definitely one of the best. Considering the cause, this was a must try, and Im really glad I did. Very flavorful and enjoyable for someone who isnt much of a pilsner fan

glennmastrange (2807) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Moderate grain and straw for the malt, light grass for the hops, with hints of pepper and wood. Head is large, frothy white with fair thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear gold. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately acidic. Palate is light to medium, between dry and watery in texture and has a lightly alcoholic and dry finish. A very good Pilsener with some nice true to style aspects. Probably the best Ive tasted from Abita.

djd07 (13711) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium frothy off white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is wheat, bubblegum and citrus. Thick mouthfeel with a bitter malt with banana and a bitter finish. A decent pils from Abita.

mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Poured very pilsner like, bright and gold with a big frothy, sticky white head. Left lots of lace. Aroma was of crisp malt, a tinge of sweetness and some bread. Very fresh smelling. Flavors were super sharp, very malt forward with just a bit of earthy hops in the finish. This was one of the most drinkable brews I have come across, just pleasant all around. A bit more full than most of the other pilsners yet this is super refreshing. I wont think twice about picking a few more of these, they are for a good cause after all.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy orange with frothy white head. Aroma of sweet corn, grass, citrus, some spice, malts and muted hops. Taste is slightly fruity up front surprisingly, slightly bitter finish. The abv is well hidden here, impressive for a style of beer thats fairly simple/straightforward. This beer is for a good cause, which I always enjoy :) Heres to the Big Easy.

bhensonb (14895) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bomber from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Hazy gold pour with a foamy, clingy 3 finger white head. Aromas of light malt, citrus and grass. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is wheaty with some bread and grass. Maybe a touch of citrus. Finishes nicely bitter in a grassy way. It drinks very, very easily.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of dry, biscuity malts, peppery hops with a bit of a tropical note. The taste is tropical fruits with pale malts and a dry and bitter peppery hop finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Appearance: Pours a goodly hazed, straw-colored body with a tall, billowing, white head. Slight smattering of lace collects on the glass like so much tar on the Gulf beaches. Smell: Clear-cut scents of pilsner and wheat malt housed with notes smelling of sun-drenched grasses, saltines, a pinch of white pepper, husky grains, and orchard fruits. Taste: A crisp, grainy taste of pils malts paired with a noted twinge of tangy-tasting wheat malt. Modest sugary-toned sweetness. Fruity ester accents suggesting Bosc pears and Golden Delicious apples. Eventually a touch of simple honey emerges. Lightly floral, spicy hops with ample bitterness. A bit more of that bitterness and some peppery alcohol hints grace the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Sure, its a little high on the alcohol, but, thankfully, it doesnt stray too terribly far towards unrefreshing, cloying territories. Overall, a good beer for a good cause. You know, its nice to occasionally use my evident alcoholism for the forces of GOOD.

22oz bottle. clear gold under a large, frothy, white head. aroma of sweet cereal grains, gentle bittering hops, maybe some honey. flavor has notes of over-ripe peaches and pineapple with sweetened cereal. low carbonation and creamy palate. they did do a nice job hiding 7% in a pilsener.
